Wood Slice Fall Wreath - RS

Wood-Slice-Wreath-RS

Fall is a time we all seem to reach for a wreath to put on our front doors or over a mantel.  Today, I am sharing a different approach to a wreath – this one made from wood slices.

Step 1 – Slice thin slices from a dry log.  We used a chop saw.   This one was made with black birch.

Step 2 – Layer them onto a flat wreath form.  If this is going to be used indoors, hot glue works fine.  However, if it is going to be used outdoors and in a sunny location, use an adhesive for outdoors.

Step 3 – Gather your wheat stalks so that they stagger and fill the space.  Tie them together with some twine and cut the ends even.  Repeat the same with your dried lavender.

Step 4 – Layer together the wheat and lavender, then begin filling in with feathers.  Group together some pine cones and attach them with glue.  Fold over pieces of burlap ribbon and glue them behind your grouping.
